Monday Made It: Spray Paint

I didn't really make anything this week but I did spray paint a couple of things. :)

I didn't want white team tubs because my walls are white, so I decided to try my hand at spray painting them. I also got this cubby from a friend who is moving. It's not big enough for my students at school since I will definitely have more than 16 kiddos but it was perfect for home. 

I tend to be a messy painter, not matter how hard I try, so I put on my painting clothes (yes, I have a nice paint spot on the backside of these bottoms.)

It did not take long at all! It also only took one can to do my three tubs and 3/4 of my cubby. If I didn't want to the back done I could have said "Finished!" Since I don't know if I will always use it in the same space, I wanted to make sure I covered the back and as far into the cubbies as I could. 

It looks great in my entry way closet! I'm hoping this will help keep our shoes out of the way and easy find. (Notice, my husband only has one cubby for his Sunday shoes. He usually takes his off in the garage.)

I go back to school officially this week. Eekk! I'm not ready at all. Oh well, it's going to come ready or not. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Spray painting totally counts as "making" something!
